About us

Established in 1991, Child Wise has over 30 years experience keeping children and young people safe from harm.

Our consulting services help prevention of child abuse and exploitation by building the capacity of organisations and businesses to ensure the safety of children and young people in their care.

Child Wise pioneered the use of Child Safety Standards within organisations where children and young people spend time, and we continue to work towards maintaining a culture where child safety is front of mind.

In late 2017 Child Wise became a social enterprise of Save The Children Australia, working with organisations Australia and overseas to develop child safeguarding practices, policies and processes to keep children and young people safe from harm.
